Alright --dont know if this is the right place[paranoid]
~ but ~


I asked my parents to get me a clear signal grill and clear side-markers for Christmas -- I was wondering if any people had trouble passing inspection due to the signals not being amber ---[dunno] thanks for the help


i looked at the state laws the S2 posted-- -according to it I will be fine if i have white or amber or any color between--- but i just wanted to see if yall have ran into any problems --even though its legal
thanks for the help--- i am still curious

People from your home state will probably be able to provide you with accurate information.

there should be no problem. as long as you are displaying a amber light. so your gonna need amber bulbs if the side markers are clear.

Behind the bumper where the side markers are at should be 2 screws holding the markers in ... that is it. Pretty simple.

For the emblem I remember being one screw holding the emblem ... but I haven't done that in a long time.

you dont have to have amber bulbs, but it is recommended.

they can be white or yellow (amber) to pass inspection.

hell, i had those cheap ass "hyper white" bulbs in there, and they looked damn close to being blue, and never had a problem.

do they even check this kind of stuff? my shop just plugs in OBDII scanner, as long as I got no codes (even when i was catless) I'm good and I'm on my way. some shops will care about illegal tint though

A good wrench or even some pliers could get the screws off. And no they are not hard. It should really take you like 2-4 minutes each to change. Pretty simple.
